[Proteopedia] NMR format, bot tasks

first, to introduce myself, I'm an IT guy, privately interested
in molecular biology. After writing some time for the german language
Wikipedia, the lack of 3D visualisation for my protein pages drove
me to Proteopedia. At the moment, I'm playing.

Does someone of you know where code can be had that collects
several structures into one, presumably using the NMR format?
I know it's easy to do but why reinvent the wheel...

The question, however, that's bothering me is that IMHO there should
be a link from any structure page to that topic pages where the
structure is used. It could be text like 'See also the topics:' at
the top or a row in the info box 'Topic pages:' or a paragraph in
the section 'About this structure' reading e.g. 'This structure is
also used in the pages ...'

Since it can't be relied on that authors do such backlinks, and this
can be automatized, it should be automatized at some time.

On another note, I would like to see a list of all structure pages
that have been enhanced by other authors than OCA. This should be
automatized, too.

Which leads me to the question, is there a way of running a bot like
in Wikipedia? I have a one time experience with writing a bot and
would be willing to write something that does the abovementioned
tasks in Proteopedia.
